This brings up a real disadvantage to widescreen video. I tuned in to see Jack Black's segment. But in widescreen every time the camera was on Jack you had included in the shot a very bizarre Boy George looking on from the side. Also toward the end I started getting a lot of video artifacts. Was that on the national feed or something more local?
i don't totally understand your question, or the last part. but the card is a tuner/source and by utilizing your pc harddrive a recorder too. the dvhs is a recorder only, they can work with your computer, and you can put the myhd card files on to dvhs if you want, i do this.. and keep some on harddrive too
if you get a dvhs you will have to still get a source/tuner for it, as unlike vcrs these have no tuners. a myhd card and your pc can be a source for the dvhs decks
I have a Mitsubishi TV with an integrated tuner. Now that I'm thinking of it... MyHD sounds better than a D-VHS cause I'm not too keen on paying for a 169time option to record satellite with a new Tivo right around the corner.
does your set have firewire or the promise mod, if so you could record ota hd from it to dvhs, i beleive. so no need to get a tuner then to use a dvhs machine
There are other ota stbs with firewire that would work with dvhs to record ota hd channels other then 169time mods,-- which is all the myhd card can record-- ( except if you have a discounted dish stb) --- your tv tuner possibly as meantioned above, the samsung stb for another. zeniths upcoming ota hd pvr should work with dvhs too
if you have a firewire tv with tuner, and dont mind tapes a dvhs machine mite be a good deal
Firewire is integrated into the set, I guess I should have said it before to clear the air. It's a Platinum series Mits (511).
As far as recording from satellite, I'm giving up on 169time's idea, it's just too expensive and "buggy". Also, Tivo will basically do the job. A majority of what I want to record (mostly including Jay Leno) will be accomplished by the MyHD card. The D-VHS does seem to be a good idea for D-Theater, low/no compression loss HD as well as other types of archiving.
